Roxburghe Estates (together with EDF Renewables and Hermes) established the Fallago Environment Fund over 5 years ago. This distributes £200k per annum to local community projects that conserve and enhance the natural, built and cultural heritage of the entire Borders region.
The Fund is unique at a national level in terms of breadth of scope and the size of eligible area. The fund is administered by Tweed Forum. As the Covid crisis kicked in, the Estate decided to curtail the usual application process and deploy the entire £100k of the March 2020 round to community support during the crisis.
